    Oregon Harvest 2008

    Oregon's grape harvest continued today in perfect, cool weather. In Tony Soter's outstanding Mineral Springs Vineyard (pictured here) in the Yamhill Carlton AVA they decided to put in the extra time needed to harvest the entire vineyard today as the fruit was in perfect condition and rain is forecasted over the next several days. Most of this vineyard is planted in a unique clone of pinot noir discovered and then propagated by Soter from an old vineyard in California. It has no name at this time and Mineral Springs is the only vineyard anywhere planted with this clone. As it is yet formally named, I'll call it the Soter Clone. This combination of distinctive terroir with a unique massal clone makes this one of the most exciting vineyards in Oregon.

    Hi Craig. Nice to reed about the Oregon harvest. At Il Poggione in Montalcino we finished last week and we are definitely happy with the quality!
    Take a look at Montalcino Report for some news regarding the Brunello debate and feel free to share your thoughts!! Comments are always greatly appreciated.
